According to a statement issued on Friday, in an address to the people of Jammu and Kashmir Syed Ali Shah Geelani said that at a time when our freedom struggle against India’s illegal occupation is going through a crucial phase, conducting of DDC elections is to further the heinous design of demographic changes, land grabs, building settler colonies, assaulting our economy and snatching our livelihood.
Syed Ali Geelani said that all the people and political parties, contesting and participating in these elections are acting against the freedom movement.
“Their actions are not only legitimizing the Indian occupation but they arc equally responsible and contributing towards creating these new occupational structures like DDC, BDC and panchayat for the annihilation of people of Jammu and Kashmir at the hands of Indian occupational machine” he said.
“The resilient people of Jammu and Kashmir have no moral and ethical ground to be part of this shame process and therefore should completely boycott these DDC elections. We should stand firm against these machinations and theatrics of Indian state and continue our struggle till the dawn of freedom, InShAllah” Syed Ali Shah Geelani said.
